What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Photojournalism, Portraiture, Traditional / Posed
What do your packages include?
Albums, Custom Graphic Design, Digital Files, Flush Mount, High Resolution Images, Prints
Do you have liability insurance?
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
We do it all! Sepia toning, hand coloring, special effects and more! All images on disk come in just color with simple color corrections, but can be printed at any lab in black and white as well. Any prints ordered through us digital effects are free, this includes retouch and hand coloring.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
We've experienced almost every lighting situation imaginable... and have been trained in all kinds of ways to deal with them. The worst of these situations being back-lit, bright sunshine, or no available light we have ways of making any photograph beautiful.
Is your media preference film or digital?
We can work in either format... but we mostly do digital now for these reasons: 1.) It allows us to take so many more photos than we could with film 2.) We can check our images as we go for quality control. 3.) The ability to change film speeds without having to change film, this is great for events when lighting changes. 4.) It allows us to put your images online for viewing and create gorgeous albums.
How many photographers do you work with?
There are packages for one or two photographers. I am confident enough that if I am hired by myself to photograph your wedding that every aspect of your wedding will be covered. A typical six-hour wedding yields approx. 1000 to 1200 images when I am alone. By picking a package with more than one photographer you will get more candid shots and different angles of every event and approx. 1500 to 2500 images.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes, of course!
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
Never book more than one wedding a day. There are only so many weekends in the summer so the likeliness of us having more than one wedding in a weekend is very good.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
We have a list of professionals that we would go through to cover your event. We have never missed a wedding in the 8 years that we have been in business!
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
Camera and a back-up camera, flash and a back-up flash, depending on the location and time-frame: lights, lens, cards, etc.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Yes! Yes! Yes! This is never a question, once in a lifetime events deserve treatment as such with a plan ?B?
Do you charge hourly or full day?
Packages except for our highest-grade package are set up hourly. Because we offer unlimited photos taken within our contracted period the amount of photos taken and the amount of time editing after the event is considered in our prices so that we can cover our wages for the amount of time involved in processing all the images from your event.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
Overtime is available for $150 per an hour extra in all but the smallest package we offer.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
Other than to get a quick bite to eat... none... we are working through the entire event.
Do you charge for travel?
We only charge for distances over a 100 mile radius from Denver. This varies on whether or not we will have to get accommodations for the evening.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
Images are available online to view within one-two weeks of the wedding. Proof books & high-resolution images on disks are available 4-6 weeks from the wedding.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
Online and in proof books. All packages include your high resolution images on CD as well.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
All proof books, prints, CDs, DVD, etc. any product given to you is yours to keep.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
We technically own the copyright to all images we produce forever, however we do provide a copyright release form for printing your images however you would like for personal (noncommercial) use only..
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
Yes, unless for some reason the couple requests beforehand that they not be used. It is usually very exciting for our clients to see their wedding images in print in a bridal magazine or to find out that their image won an award.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Will images be available for viewing online?
What kind of albums do you offer?
We offer coffee table style books and leathercraftsmen flush mount albums. These are not your mother?s wedding album! They are fun, creative and we involve you in the creation process.
When will the client get the final album?
For packages with albums we involve our clients in the production... after the client has given us their album selections we design a draft of the album and place it online for them to view. We go through changes to the book until they are satisfied (3 Free Rounds of Changes, $25 per a round thereafter) upon final approval it takes 4-6 weeks for the book to return from the binders.

Mike and Jamie were the best photographers. We could not have asked for more attentive and creative people to capture our day. We had a destination wedding and it was about one hundred degrees one our wedding day but that did not stop them...they were there for every minute and they took amazing pictures. My husband is hard to get good pictures of because he is always talking or doing something but they managed to capture a bunch of great pics. I give them an eleven out of ten for service and quality!

They make wonderful videos as well. It was so great to get to see the day all over again. They are so accommodating, they will make the edited version however you want. We are going to show our video at our reception back home and we can't wait.

We just received our wedding photo proofs back from Jamie at Crystaline Photo this past weekend and the first thing I wanted to do was thank her. She did an amazing job. We got every shot that we requested and then some. Jamie was completely invisible the whole time, I have no idea how she got so many great photographs. Since you can't be in more than one place at your wedding, it was a huge surprise to me that Jamie captured so many moments that we missed but now feel like we were a part of. My mother's first comment after she saw the proofs was, "I feel like I didn't miss a single part of the wedding with all of the photographs!" We also had Jamie's husband Mike of Digital DJ do our ceremony and reception music and we received so many positive comments from our guests on his music selection. They made our event just perfect and went above and beyond. I can't recommend them enough. Thank you both!

Jamie and everyone with Crystaline Photo was amazing to work with. Jaime was able to meet with us before our ceremony so I knew that she had a clear idea if what kind of pictures we wanted. When I saw our pictures, I was amazed. They were more beautiful and creative that I ever imagined. Months after our special day I still can't stop looking at them. I have not seen any other photographer's picture that impress me as much as Jaime's. Also, our weddin video was so professionally done. Every moment we would want captured was captured beautifully! I will continually recommend Crystaline Photo to anyone who desires creative, beautiful, and timeless pictures!

Jamie at Crystaline Photography was awesome!! From the first meeting to arriving early and staying late to finishing my wedding album - she was great through the entire process. She was very professional, in fact I didn't even notice her during the ceremony, but she caught every moment. She took so many great pictures.
